WESTERN NEW YORK FORECAST SUMMARY Forecast Discussion for BUF NWS Office
SYNOPSIS... A flow of cold air will continue to generate areas of lake
effect snow east and southeast of the lakes into tonight before finally
weakening Sunday morning. An area of low pressure will then move through
the Great Lakes region Sunday afternoon and Monday and bring a widespread
general snowfall to the region...which may end as a little rain or sleet
before ending. Bitterly cold air will then build in behind this system for
the latter half of next week with additional lake effect snow expected. 

Todays high barometer of 1029.5 mb broke the monthly high of 1027.8 mb set on 12/09/2016 by 1.7 mb
